As platinum sponsors Chippie and CLT are also part of the committee that is tasked to organize the 5th annual lighting parade.

President of Rio Productions, Ms. Brenda Wathey stated:  “I’m honored and delighted that Chippie and CLT will remain dedicated to the promotion of the Lighted Parade and thereby contribute to the overall Carnival experience. Yearly we organize events that are truly showcasing our culture, and without the support of the platinum sponsors we would not be able to bring so much joy to the people of St. Maarten”.

Ms. Wathey continued: “Chippie and CLT both have a team of young & energetic marketing experts, and we are very happy that we can team-up with them. We strongly believe that ‘collaboration is the key to success’. We are therefore looking forward to work with these young St. Maarten professionals and make the upcoming Lighted Parade the biggest party of the year!”
